Country star Miranda Lambert is still pinching herself after joining Sheryl Crow and her idol Loretta Lynn on last year's (10) Coal Miner's Daughter collaboration - because she got to hang out with the legend at her mansion.
The trio is nominated for an Academy of Country Music award for the project but Lambert insists she has already won because she'll never have another experience like the one she did recording the track and shooting the video.
She tells The Hollywood Reporter, "It was unbelievable. Really, it was crazy that I got to be part of such an amazing thing. Loretta is the queen of country music. She, to me, is everything I want to be. Also, I'm a huge fan of Sheryl Crow. I think she's amazing and so inspiring.
"Getting to be involved in that was really emotional for me because I got to spend all day at Loretta's mansion with her and Sheryl when we made our video. It made me think about what I want.
